When we started on our walk the temperature was 17 degrees Fahrenheit. Brr! We tried to get to Connor Bayou but it is marshland all around it, with cattails and tall grasses.
We walked to the east, the park goes east here quite a ways but no trails and you are between houses and the marsh. So we turned back to the west and walked the 7/10's of a mile to the other end of the property. We saw a Pileated Woodpecker along the way.

Years ago you could drive back through this property to a boat launch on "Little Robinson". We parked at the road and walked through the woods to the old boat launch, about a half mile. The sky was a vivid blue with some puffy white clouds. We walked another quarter mile to the area of an old ditch.
What a beautiful day. We wandered back through the woods, sitting in the snow for a rest.
